REVIEW ð INSPIRECONSULTING.CO.ZA ☆ Wilkie Collins Wilkie Collins ☆ 1 FREE READ FREE READ ☆ The Woman in White A Fairlie Walter becomes embroiled in the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his 'charming' friend Count Fosco who has a taste for white mice vanilla bonbons and poison Pursuing uestions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse The Woman in White is the first and most influen I am thinking he remarked uietly whether I shall add to the disorder in this room by scattering your brains about the fireplaceWritten in 1859 60 by William Wilkie Collins and originally published in serial form in Charles Dickens magazine Wilkie and Charles were good friends The Woman in White is considered one of the earliest examples of detective fiction though it s really just the better part of the second half of this book that has any real detecting going on Before that you have to wade through star crossed love and the heroine acting all self sacrificing very bad idea at least in this case There s uite a bit of Victorian melodrama and some eyebrow raising coincidences but also some unforgettable characters and some intense suspense in the second half Walter Hartright note the symbolic name is a young art teacher One night he helps a distressed lady dressed in white who was wandering down the street find a cabAfter she s gone a couple of men chasing her tell Walter that she s escaped from an asylum Oops But the lady in white will soon affect his life than he can knowWalter takes a job for a few months teaching art to a couple of gently bred young ladies Laura Fairlie and Marian Halcombe Laura is lovely uiet and timid and also BTW bears a startling resemblance to the mysterious woman in white Marian has a singularly unattractive face but a charming outgoing personality Guess which one Walter falls for And Laura loves him too though they never speak of it except to Mariansome spoilers in the next 3 paragraphs for the first half of the bookBut Laura is an heiress out of Walter s class and she s also engaged to a older baronet as arranged by her family so she and Walter sadly part ways He goes on an expedition to South America to let time distance and adventure heal his wounded heart She marries her baronet Sir Percival Glyde figuring I guess that she might as well and he s always been kind to herAfter the marriage which uickly goes south since Glyde only married Laura for her money and has no interest in being nice to her once they re married strange things start to happen Glyde wants Laura to sign papers she still has control of her fortune but won t show her what she s signing hiding everything except the line where she s supposed to sign Even in Victorian times that s pretty alarming for the lady involvedMarian who s living with Laura and Sir Percival is very concerned for the fragile Laura s wellbeing And she deeply mistrusts Percival and his other houseguests the huge urbane Count Fosco who acts all affable but has a dangerous glint in his eyes and his subservient wife who stands to inherit a chunk of money if Laura dies Count FoscoThings get complicated from there but I don t want to spoil it The actual mystery is a little unlikely but it s an intriguing read The novel had a few parts that were long winded andor sentimental in that distinctively Victorian kind of way and also typical of older books there are a lot of stereotypes For instance the women tend to faint or get ill rather than be tough and useful although Marian is generally an exception to that rule But the story really sucked me in the further I got into it Marian and Count Fosco are truly uniue and memorable characters Identity is a recurring theme for the villains as well as some of the main characters as are hidden secrets I especially liked the uasi investigative structure of the novel with narration by multiple characters each with his or her own distinctive voice and point of view The kind hearted loyal Walter Marian writing in her diary Laura s whiny invalid uncle who just wants to be left alone and is of no help to Laura in her trials the prideful Count Fosco weaving his plans a couple of servants all of them get their turn explaining their part of the events in this book I thought that was really well done As a lawyer I found the lawyer s description of marriage settlements particularly interesting along with the negotiations between him acting for Laura and Sir Percival s lawyer And when he says and then repeats No daughter of mine should have been married to any man alive under such a settlement as I was compelled to make for Laura Fairlie it was a chilling moment Another Uncle Fairlie failWilkie also has a sense of humor which pops out occasionally Walter describes Mrs Vesey Laura s former governess soSome of us rush through life and some of us saunter through life Mrs Vesey sat through life A mild a compliant an unutterably tranuil and harmless old lady who never by any chance suggested the idea that she had been actually alive since the hour of her birth Nature has so much to do in this world and is engaged in generating such a vast variety of co existent productions that she must surely be now and then too flurried and confused to distinguish between the different processes that she is carrying on at the same time Starting from this point of view it will always remain my private persuasion that Nature was absorbed in making cabbages when Mrs Vesey was born and that the good lady suffered the conseuences of a vegetable
